Review rate : B+

“..will inspire many a socioeconomic academic treatise. It's a rare Hollywood beast, and a Nolan specialty..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
Review rate : B

“..the strong middle and ending roar past these problems and leave things feeling nicely complete..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the movie may not top The Avengers at the worldwide box office, but it is a far, far better thing - maybe the best, most troubling, assured and enthralling of all the superhero movies..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..notable for many things-thrilling chases, supercool vehicles, majestic vistas, an epic scale that hasn't been achieved since "The Lord of the Rings," a redemptive climax that brings an end, more or less, to a complex saga..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
3.5 of 4

“..it is visually bold and masterfully paced..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

“..is not just the summer's grandest blockbuster, but also one of the year's best movies..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
4 of 4

“..imposingly dark and hugely entertaining..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..hugely ambitious action-drama nonetheless retains the moral urgency and serious-minded pulp instincts that have made the Warners franchise a beacon of integrity in an increasingly comicbook-driven Hollywood universe. Global B.O. domination awaits..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

“..brings the Batman story to a close in enormous, satisfying fashion, not just on the huge scale it builds for itself, but on a human level as well..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..although The Dark Knight Rises ends in a furious finale of chaos, carnage, and cataclysm, the filmmaker has brought things to a satisfying closure..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..a truly grand finale raises Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy to the peak of big-screen comic book adaptations..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]

“..a pretty well-sustained piece of epic moviemaking..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
